Recent Twain Harte reviews

  • Wonderful home and owner.

    "Our family of 14 decided to plan a Gold Country getaway for my parents' birthday weekend, one week before checkin. By luck, we found this place. I reached out to the owner Lissa, Who was extremely kind and accommodating in helping us to book this home on such short notice. I went to the post office with the check and contract and paid for overnight delivery, but unfortunately they lost it for a few days and it did not arrive on time. Lissa assured me that she would help me to make this happen and allowed an alternate form of deposit the day of checkin. The house is large and beautiful and really makes the most of its space. We did a lot of cooking and talking around the table, our favorite past time. The home is just down the street from a cute little village that we went jogging to in the mornings. On Saturday we spent the day in Columbia panning for gold, enjoying the old fashion café/candy store (the owner's homemade pear pies from her own personal orchard are a must!) and having affordable custom gifts made at the blacksmith shop. On Sunday we spent the day shopping in downtown Sonora, visited the old schoolhouse and cemetery in Columbia and did downtown Columbia again for the saloon and ice cream shop. Out vacation turned out great and I could not have wish for better treatment. Family members ranging from three months old to 60 years old had a great time! Lissa and her home are truly delightful and we can't wait to return."

    "Fantastic cabin. We've been vacationing in Twain Harte for a number of years, and have only stayed in the same cabin twice. Not because any were particularly bad, we just like variety. However, this one we will return to. The decoration/ambiance is first rate and comfortable. The privacy is complete, and the fire pit was the family gathering place every evening. We had a small problem on the first day which, as it turned out, simply required some education on our part. Patrick, the go-to guy, arrived quickly and solved the problem. And lastly, the cabin and the grounds were among the cleanest, if not the cleanest, that we have stayed. Try it. You won't be disappointed."

  • A memorable stay!

    "Our family rented Lone Star for our son’s wedding festivities. We were looking for several places to rent in Twain Harte for 3-4 days for many out of town guests. Lone Star was by far the best home we rented! (We rented a total of 4 homes.) This home is lovely and welcoming and extremely comfortable. It is perfect for any size group small or large. Well appointed and had everything we needed and then some! We hosted a rehearsal dinner for 50+ guests in the backyard. Plenty of room for the guests and caterer. The caterer was even able to cook some of the items on site because of the wonderful kitchen at Lone Star. The setting for the dinner in the backyard was perfect – private and surrounded by beautiful trees, landscaping and mini lights throughout the yard. All of this made for a very memorable and special evening. All of our guests commented on how lovely, homey and relaxing the evening was. While the adults lingered over cocktails, coffee and dessert, the kids were able to play either in the yard or in the house in the upstairs family room. This room is really kid friendly – board games, plenty of space to lounge, big TV and second small kitchen for easy access to their snacks. We only wish we would have remembered to take pictures of the outside dinner space! Sorry none to share but trust us when we say it was wonderful! Quiet location even though not far from town. We were really able to get some rest during this hectic time and so much enjoyed the added bonus of the hot tub. Between the owners of Lone Star, our wedding planner Tricia Thompson and our family and friends, this was such a time we will never forget. We will definitely rent Lone Star again!"

  • Love it!

    "The only thing this beautiful cabin is missing is the directions on how to win at miniature golf. It's just s short walk to the mini golf course (after of course stopping for a great meal outside at the Rock with live music playing across the street) but I lost each time we went so a little help would be appreciated! Twain Harte is a wonderful vacation destination in all seasons and this cabin is the perfect place to stay. Most things are walkable from here, but it is also a great place to just sit and enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres on the deck. Fantastically stocked kitchen, comfy beds and plenty of them, very clean, nicely appointed, absolutely no complaints! Highly recommended: Star Shows on the rock at the lake - check out for dates."
